THE PROLOGUE TO THE CANTERBURY TALES REFLECTS STRUGGLE BETWEEN CHARACTERS. FOCUS ON: DIFFERING TASTES
Md. Lutful Arafat
English Literature
Abstract

The most pleasurable contrast in Geoffrey Chaucer's The Prologue to The Canterbury Tales is the aroma, colure and taste of the people of the 14th Century. He reveals the social, economical & political condition of his country where the author was a spectator and the poem gives us the background of the action and movement of the pilgrims. This paper investigates the forces of portraying the images of the characters explaining their appearance, dress and behavior. To do so, it will take four of the characters to examine their ambiguity, contrast and vivid distinct picture. The paper will demonstrate how it betrays the ideological issues and determine the choice and targets of them.
